The Role of Religion During Jan. 6 Insurrection

During the January 6 insurrection on the Capitol, the mob depicted images of religious and historical symbols, as well as dressed in costumes.

There were bibles, crosses and insurrectionists dressed as priests during the attack. Others cited America’s Civil War history as they stormed the Capitol, draped in Confederate flags, dressed as Confederate soldiers and in Abraham Lincoln costume. This highlights the significance the role religion and symbolism played during the attacks.

Anthea Butler, professor of religion and Africana studies at the University of Pennsylvania, joins Charles Blow on “Prime” to talk about the part religion had in the insurrection.
